York's Rick Eckert triumphed in the Appalachian Mountain Dirt Late Model Speedweek feature at Port Royal Speedway on Tuesday night, taking his third career oval win in the event.

In the record books, Eckert was scored as leading every lap, but he was constantly challenged by other racers in the 40-lap event. The racing was sometimes four-wide across the track.

Eckert started on the pole of the $5,000-to-win affair.

Eckert ended up crossing the finish line .898 seconds ahead of Austin Hubbard.

"That's by far the best race track I've ever seen here," Eckert said. "That thing was four wide."

Greg Satterlee crossed third, 1.522 seconds back of the winner, followed by Jamie Lathroum and Davey Johnson.

Vic Coffey came from the rear on the eighth lap to finish sixth, followed by Jason Covert, Jeremy Miller, Coleby Frye and Scott Lebarron.

Stone set quick time over the 42-car field with a lap of 20.332 seconds.

Heats went to D.J. Myers, Coffey, Johnson and Lathroum.

Twin B mains went to Bryan Bernheisel and Tim Wilson.

Grant Adams took the lead from Travis Stickley on the 11th lap of the 20-lap limited-late model main to score a $1,000 payday.

Chad Myers took second with seven laps to go but failed to challenge for the win.

After spinning on the initial start and going to the rear, Dave Leidy came back for third followed by Stickley and Billy Wampler.
